At His Feet

Angels

The Lord has given me a chance to speak about ANGELS in the church, some how I am bewitched by this subject, recently, and meditating on the word of God, on this particular subject. Right from the beginning of the Creation, There are angels in His ministry, to carry on the work given by the Father in Heaven. When Adam and Eve were driven away from the Garden of Eden, an Angel was given charge over to protect it from any more intrusion of the first man. The angel was equipped with a two fiery sword to protect the tree of Life.
Later in the life of Abraham the angels in three persons were entertained by Adam, not knowing that he was giving his hospitality to angels themselves. As a result Abraham was blessed with Isaac and later he had the chance to intervene on behalf of Sodom and Gomorrah…
Though Lot was living in Sodom and Gomorrah, because of the intercessions and supplications of Abraham, he had the opportunity to entertain the angels and thus being saved from the wrath of God and was able to save the live of his nod his daughters.
Though Hagar was a bondmaid, and though she looked down at Sarah, her Mistress, who has given her a position of princess and treated her equal to her. She was with the Angel of God in the desert, when she faced death along with her son. She called that angel as SEEING GOD .The benevolent God had His mercy on her and looked after her.
Later we see angels giving a message in the dream of Jacob by climbing up and down on the ladder from earth to heaven. Later he wrestled with an angel and prayed unless u blesses me I will not let u go, and thereby he got the name ISREAL, the one who fight with God.
What else can I say about Gideon, Daniel in the lions den so on and so forth?
Some of the names of the angels are given in Holy Scriptures, like Michael, Raphael, Gabriel so on.
The birth of Christ was proclaimed by angels, by Gabriel to Mary, and in dream to Joseph, and multitude of angels to the shepherds. There was an angel at the alter to speak to the priest Zechariah, to tell him about the birth of John the Baptist.
Many a times angels are like jus like human beings, they are there for us to guide us, to direct us, and to minister us, and help us in our most needed occasions. They help us in our distress and in our travels, in so many ways. God has his angels to guard us and to tell us His plan for us.
Recently I started to think about the ministry that I am inspired to take upon. The work I would like to do among HIV/AIDS patients/children; and work I am longing to do among the sex workers.
These are people who do not have hope for life, hope of self esteem, they are forsaken by the society, and they live in utter distress and misery not knowing when their lives would end. I wish I could do something for these distressed souls. Before my life would end and my strength fail me. May the good Lord help me to pursue this task and send His angles to guard and guide me till my last breath. Those who know the Lord please pray for me and for these dear people of my heart.
God be with you!!
